R.I.P. Rudy Ray Moore 3-17-27 to 10-19-08

On Sunday October 19, 2008 Rudy Ray Moore made his transition into the ancestor realm in Toledo, Ohio from diabetes complications. Although he may not have received as much mainstream acclaim as his comedic counterparts Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor, he was a king in the underground circuit.
The character Dolemite was the creation of a wino named Rico that Rudy Ray Moore observed telling foul mouth jokes and rhymes at a record shop Moore managed in Los Angeles. He then one day recorded Rico's stories and Moore himself became Dolemite. Because of the explicit lyrics and racy album covers Rudy Ray Moore albums could not be on display in stores, which made him take it to the streets.
"I put records in my car and traveled and walked across the U.S. I walked to the ghetto communities and told people to take the record home and let their friends hear it. And before I left the city, my record would be a hit. This is how it started for me," he told the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 2001. So that means that Dolemite not Master P was the pioneer of "Out the trunk sales". I once had the honor of sitting and talking to Rudy Ray Moore which was truly an experience. He told me "Soul Brotha" I'm so thankful to you Goddamn Rappers for sampling my work. As a lyricist and fan of Black Exploitation films I was truly honored. He left an extensive body of work and influenced many generations of comedians, hip-hop artists, and filmmakers. Check out the youtube clips of his different movies and interviews also browse his website. I believe we must truly study our elder and ancestor artists of all disciplines to learn better what, when,where, and how we can better leave our mark on the world. The "Godfather of Rap" as he and many have coined him, comedian Rudy Ray Moore a.k.a. Dolemite a.k.a. Petey Wheatstraw: The Devils Son-in-law was and is still the true nasty rapper!
Here is a clip from Dolemite! The Signified Monkey please be advised it does contain
